Wills with Yarra Valley Legal

Wills in Lilydale

Getting a Will done with professional advice is an insurance policy to make sure that your estate goes exactly where you want it to, making sure that your loved ones are protected.

One common question we see asked is why should we see a Lawyer for a Will rather than use a ‘Do-it yourself’ Will kit? The big difference with the ‘Do-it Yourself’ Wills is that they can often lead to problems once you pass away, incurring extra legal costs and putting significant stress on your loved ones.

If you do not have a valid Will that meets all the requirements of the relevant acts then your Will may not be accepted by the Court, meaning that your assets will be distributed depending on the legislation at the time. If this happens, your assets may not be split how you or your family would like and there will likely be extra stress and costs for your loved ones because there are extra steps involved in trying to rely on an informal Will.

Our Goal

Our Goal at Yarra Valley Legal is to make the Will process as easy and as personal as we can by taking the stress out of it. Our principal lawyer, Tahli, will come to your house, or your favorite café, all over the Yarra Valley, to sit down with you and work out exactly what you want done with your estate. Tahli will provide you with detailed and personally tailored advice during this meeting on everything in your estate and what to you need to do with the assets that may not be part of your estate.

Once your Will is ready to be signed and you are happy with everything, Tahli will then meet with you a second time with another witness to make sure that the signing of your Will is valid.
